WELP I tried to make a tutorial on crafting. I hope people understand my horrible English.

I also hope it helps a bit. If you have any questions, I'll be sure to answer them the best I can!

Part Two will come in a few days! Still waiting for them to dry.

Can I use a hot-glue gun if a crack appears.

I'm not entirely sure... but you could try and see how it works out.

tip, if you usually get it cracked and stuff, try paper clay. it's the same thing as model magic, but it hardens up so much, that you can use sandpaper to fix it. it's heavier, warning!

Hi! I've heard from many people that model magic doesn't work... How do you keep it from breaking?

Some people use something (Can't remember the name, sorry) to harden them so they don't break.

No, actually. I made Aradia horns with Model Magic and they aren't really light (3 days with horns on a headband xD).

how long do they typically take to dry? I'll be using these for a few days at a con so also will they be durable enough?

My friend made his three days before and a crack appeared in the one. I waited two days and they were okay. I'd wait around a week or so before (The inside has to dry).

If you're putting them on a black headband, how do you get it to stay on? Do you glue it?

you might want to put a wire in the middle of the horns then attach the wire threw the head band then add some heavy duty glue. If you're ever seen Heroes of cosplay Heather does this with one of her and her friend's creations.

Lol! They actually came out pretty good except i didn't have time to dye my hair so i had to use the spray and it looked like my hair was a wig that just got tossed through a chicken coop or something -_-
